Tim Sweeney

ZZT is an ANSI character-based video game, created in 1991 by Tim Sweeney of Potomac Computer Systems which became Epic MegaGames in 1992. It remains a popular MS-DOS game creation system. ZZT itself is not an acronym for anything; its title was chosen so it would always appear at the bottom of newsgroup listings. It was later jokingly mentioned by Sweeney as being short for Zoo of Zero Tolerance, which has mistakenly become a popular belief.

Window Fragments: A short ZZT game about exploring old computers By Dr. Dos, created at 32,767 feet while flying from Minnesota to Washington in about 2 hours. There's not much to it, and the writing is all very stream of consciousness.

This is my all-time favorite FPS, Chex Quest. It uses the Id Tech 1 engine that was used on Id Software's DOOM. This also led up to a fanbase, two sequels (Chex Quest 2 & Chex Quest 3), and even a HD remake on Steam!
